generationFIVE 3-Day Introductory Training
generationFIVE is a national organization whose mission is to end child sexual abuse within five generations. Through survivor leadership, bystander involvement, community organizing, and public action, generationFIVE works to interrupt and mend the intergenerational impact of child sexual abuse on individuals, families, and communities. Rather than perpetuate the isolation of this issue, we integrate child sexual abuse prevention and response into social justice movements and community organizing targeting family violence, economic and racial oppression, and gender and age-based discrimination. It is our belief that meaningful community response is the key to effective prevention.
generationFIVE (gen5) invites you to participate in our next 3-Day Introductory Training on December 9 – 11, 2011 in the Bay Area.
During the gen5 3-Day we will:
- Explore the intersections between child sexual abuse, other forms of violence, and social justice organizing.
- Introduce the impact of trauma on individuals, communities and movements and relevant ways to integrate our understanding of trauma into organizing and activism.
- Introduce participants to Somatic tools for working with and around trauma.
- Intersect child sexual abuse respond and prevention organizing and other community work and social justice movements.
- Introduce and develop organizing and agency practices that integrate personal, community and political transformation.
- Support individual and community resiliency-based work as key to social change.
- Introduce participants to the principles of Transformative Justice and responses to incidences of child sexual abuse and other forms of intimate violence that prevent future abuse and intimate, community and state violence.
- Introduce and invite specific ways to integrate child sexual abuse and prevention and response and the work of gen5 and our collaborative partners.
This training will be lead by Micah Frazier and Mia Mingus.
